Got To Be Certain

Please enjoy...The 'Shine On and On' Kylie Classic of the week,"Got To Be Certain"
"Got to Be Certain" is a dance-pop song written and produced by British songwriting team Stock, Aitken and Waterman for Kylie Minogue's debut studio album Kylie (1988). The song had been originally written for singer Mandy Smith, but her recording was never released until 2005. The song was released as the third single in the spring of 1988 and became the first single to debut at number one in Australia. It also topped the charts in Belgium and Finland. It reached the top ten in France, Germany, South Africa, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.

The music video for "Got To Be Certain" was directed by Chris Langman and filmed in April 1988. The video was filmed around Melbourne in Australia. Four different edits were made, combining shots of Kylie on a merry-go-round, in an artist's studio and dancing in a coffee-house, which is the official video.

What a fabulous post! Whenever I hear GTBC, I always think of the performance from the "Let's Get To It Tour". I had it on VHS, and I almost wore out the tape in that place!

Mandy Smith had absolutely NO talent whatsoever, did she? Jx
